I clean Rockwell, which is the Fashion building. We clean and maintain everything, and now because of Covid19 we're even more careful. We've memorized the class schedules so we know when to go into classrooms to disinfect, and also when a common area has cleared out we clean there too. We're constantly watching high touch points like doorknobs, tables and chairs.
WORKED AT KENT STATE SINCE:
EMPLOYMENT PRIOR TO KENT STATE UNIVERSITY:
I worked for Youngstown Developmental Center, for the mentally and physically challenged. I worked in the screen printing area, working with people. Some could handle only one task, others could do more, but they got paid for the tasks they completed.
LIKES MOST ABOUT KENT STATE UNIVERSITY:
The people. The staff in the fashion building are all very nice and supportive. And my work partner and I are a good team, I couldn't do it without her. Where I leave off she picks up.
PROUDEST MEMORY WHILE AT KENT STATE:
I remember one time we did a really great job of stripping and waxing the main common area. The entrance area and stairs looked great, and it was nice to step back and see the good work we'd done.
ATTRACTION TO KENT STATE AS AN EMPLOYER:
The developmental center was going to be shut down so I had to find a new employer. Someone I used to work with let me know about an opening here, and I applied.
North Jackson, OH
I'm a water person. We have a house on Lake Erie, and pretty much every nice weekend in the summer we go up there. Swimming, boating, paddle boarding. With everything shut down, we'll probably even keep going up there as it gets colder.
